Driver/Event Lead

Part-time, March-December, weekdays or weekends

Berry, KY

$16-$18/hr

About the Schedule

Honey Hill Farm provides quality animal experiences for about 600 events each year, in Kentucky Ohio, Indiana and West Virginia. Our busiest season is from Easter until Halloween, with a short rush in December.

As the number and types of events vary from week to week, drivers and event assistants see wide fluctuations in their work schedules. The nature of Honey Hill Farm employment is somewhat Gigbased. Once fully trained, event staff are free to accept or decline events based on their availability.

This job is perfect as a secondary source of income, and if you:

  • are looking for part-time, flexible work.
  • are comfortable with fluctuating hours
  • feel like you can make a reasonable commitment to work at least once a week most of the time (ex. most Saturdays or one weekday each week).
  • live within 45 miles of Berry, KY.

Description

Drivers start their day at our farm in Pendleton County, KY. They use our company trucks and trailers to safely transport animals and equipment to events in Lexington, Louisville, Cincinnati and other surrounding areas.

Before an event, drivers setup pony rides or petting zoos, sometimes alone, and sometimes with other event staff. During the event, they may lead ponies or oversee the petting zoo, answer questions about the animals and keep the area safe and clean. They also communicate with the client, manage the other event staff and represent us well to the public.

Drivers complete rigorous, paid training to prepare them for a variety of situations. Most drivers work seasonally, and return year after year.
